Simulacrum Press #14: ‘Lisa Simpson Poems’ by Volodymyr Bilyk

SCN_0005

Volodymyr Bilyk’s Lisa Simpson Poems is a 40 page chapbook in which each page has been recovered from various discarded books. Produced in an edition of 50.

Originally intended to be paired with photographs for a project that fell through, the poems in this chapbook were delivered to the editor superimposed onto images of Lisa Simpson–hence the title. Moving to text as ambient image, Bilyk’s poems have been placed on pages from discarded books. The poems themselves are difficult to describe. The writing process which Bilyk employs–an ongoing metamorphosis of certain, now unrecognizable, texts–gives us poems which thrash language with itself. Remaining composed, the poems bleed images.
